26 Cornet Street is probably the earliest remaining complete building within the town’s medieval boundaries. The National Trust of Guernsey has restored this exquisite 18th century house as a Victorian shop and parlour. Enter into a bygone age where sweets come from jars and are measured in pounds and ounces. A great attraction is the Heritage Seeds. These are very popular, as they are old type cottage garden and vegetable seeds. Also on sale are a selection of gifts, souvenirs, and confectionery. The parlour and working gaslights with their fragile mantles are also memories of a bygone age.
Opening: Open April - September: Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 4pm
